Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

Summary: All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.


John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge - and over...











My Thoughts: Awesome! We meet Meg who is a typical girl who gets into trouble a lot. She likes to live on the edge a little bit and it tends to get her into trouble. She works at a restaurant of her parents and they just kind of get "by." Her parents have pretty much given up on her with the way she acts. She has an eyebrow piercing, a tattoo, and purple hair. She is a bit wild. She just wants to leave the small town and get out in the world and LIVE! She gets into trouble one night with a group of friends and a few cops/ambulances, typical emergency call; come and arrest them. Each of the teens have to pair up with one of the arresting people. Meg gets stuck with John, the one who actually arrested them that night. She does not like him at first, she doesn't like the authority. He tends to grow on her and she starts having "thoughts" about him but in the back of her mind, she is always wondering why in the world does she like this 40 year old cop? She's only a teen!!! Well, things aren't always what they seem and there is a lot more to John than meets the eye. If you want to know what happens to Meg and John, read the book. Why is John so mysterious, what is his deal? Does Meg ever change her ways? What happens next?

Overall: Loved this one! I couldn't stop reading once I hit the first page! Why aren't there more teenage police officer romance books? Where the teen falls in love with the cop? The only two that come to mind is this one, plus Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott. I want to read another one!!!!! If you can think of one (YA), please let me know!!!

Cover: The cover is what drew me to this book. There is just something about it. I really like it!
